Design of Antenna with a Solar Cell as a Parasitic Element in the UHF RFID Tag
This paper presents a novel RFID antenna which makes solar cell and tag antenna combine as an integrated unit. The solar cell is used as a parasitic element in a tag antenna. The original feature of a solar cell (DC current generation) remains, and the solar cell which can supply the energy to activate the IC is now used as a parasitic patch at the same time. Besides a general description of solar cell antenna, the size and the simulated results of the antenna are also shown.
